    Hello everyone,
    I'm new to maxsurf motions. I have imported my design from rhino to maxsurf modeller and saved it as maxsurf model(msd). But while using the property measure hull for the design it is showing error while calculating hull strips. I have attached my design in this thread. someone please help:) View attachment

    I do not know what you mean by "calculating hull strips".
    You should simplify the model using fewer surfaces to define the hull. Some points should have an offset = 0 but they have an offset <> 0. Other points are below the baseline.
    When errors occur they are always due to defects in the model. This is very obvious but hard for people to take it into account.
    Anyway, my advice is to make a better model, as simple as possible, before you start calculating.
